Child dance photography sessions.

Over the past few months we have been photographing some amazing young dancers using our new lighting system plus natural light.

We love photographing dancers as they are very patient with us, often having to do their pose over and over before we are happy with the results. They are dedicated to achieving the best photo possible and they are just simply talented! With our smoky setups it can take a lot of repeat posing to get the smoke right so they have to be able to replicate their pose perfectly over and over.

We have had a ball with these talented youngsters and we know that their parents have absolutely loved their images and will look at them on their walls for a lifetime.

Family photography session for Tanya Rein

This weeks family photography session was for Tanya & her beautiful family. This is Tanya’s story. . . .

“My story.

I came across a post requesting children and their instruments for a photography session and as my daughter plays violin I thought why not. Three years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I had been battling treatments for quite a while and thought I was in the clear. Not long after I responded I had follow up scans which revealed more cancer, now in my bones. So when Karen contacted me, and I realised they were based in Brisbane, and with looming treatments I sadly declined the offer being financially too much for us at this time. Karen understood completely and the call ended.

A couple of hours later I received a call back from Karen, and it brought me to tears. Dean and Karen so very kindly offered my family a free shoot, and a kind soul by the name of John had offered to pay for my hair and makeup to accompany the session.

When you are faced with battles, memories and time together become so very important. And what Dean, Karen and John have done for us is nothing short of amazing. These images of us together are priceless. Treasured memories that will bring us a smile for many years.

So much fun was had, loads of laughter.

Thank you so much.

Jon, Tanya, Shayde, Summer and Kael Rein

Mother daughter session with Rennae & her amazing girls.

This is the 3rd session in our inspiration series of photography sessions where we focus on a person or family that has undergone a traumatic or transformative event and has emerged with a story to tell which we hope will inspire others. We were heart broken when we read Rennae’s story and we felt that we had to gift her a free session to give her beautiful images that will forever be important to her.
This week we had the privilege of photographing Rennae & her 3 beautiful girls, Yvette, Monique & Josephine. After years of trauma and stress, Rennae felt it was now time for her little family to have some professional photographs done for the first time after little Monique was badly and nearly fatally burnt in an accident 2 years ago. We loved photographing this strong little family and documenting this milestone in their life, and, what a brave and positive little girl Monique is.

Children & their musical instruments fine art sessions

Dean and I have been having a ball photographing child portraits, from 6yrs to 16yrs with their musical instruments. They are fantastic to photograph. They are disciplined, and they want the best results for their photographs, so they commit to the moment, they don’t complain if we ask them to hold a pose for a long time and they do as we direct perfectly. We love to see the massive smiles on their faces when we show them their image on the back of the camera and even more-so when they see their images come to life on our massive 70″ TV screen.

Family photography session for Rebecca from Mackay

Family photography 005

Rebecca and Ashley brought their girls to the Gold Coast for their annual holiday and while they were there they came to us for a glamour/family photography session.

We photographed some glamour for Rebecca, some romantic couples images just for them and then photos of the girls and the family together. Missy and Jaydah had a lot of fun with the dress ups and Missy was a natural in front of the camera. I think she was disappointed when her turn was finished.

As we have a lot of sets and several studio spaces it is easy to combine several styles of our work into the one session which is especially handy for clients who are travelling from afar as we can cover all of their photography desires in the one sitting.

If you would like pricing on a glamour, couples or family session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by email.
